They still around? Looking to buy JMR RaceLine, JD 32, or Pro Tools 105HD manual setup. Was leaning towards JMR but can't seem to find them anymore. Their website is just dead links & missing pictures, and TrickTools doesn't have them in their active catalog anymore. Just a few, odd square tube dies. Only way to find any info is old pages through google.

Rogue Fabrication M800. Super easy to use, and doesn't require a 10' circle (or more) of clear shop space to use.

Sorry this is off topic but I'm trying to be able to view pictures and I need 10posts to do so. Do these quick replys count as a post?

I’ve no idea how people can use a vertical bender unless all you bend is non compound bends and only one bend in a short piece of tube. Otherwise they’re useless as tits on a whore imo.

Please do not give that fat lieing shitbag thief any more money.
Why’s that?

I bought one of his benders a few years ago after using one of my buddies for a couple years. I had a pos M-tech (basically JD) that had thin plates so no bending .188 on it. I can bend .25 on my JMR.

Other thing I like is JMR full inch dies and non of that .5” crap.

is JMR doing much biz these days? i don't see their products at Kartek like i used to or on any websites.

I also have had great luck with their dies, and customer service was fine when i had a issue few years back. but i def would like to hear any issues others have had with them before i go deeper into getting tooling from them.

Because he's a lieing, thieving shitbag. Someone who has no problem telling you the parts for your truck got stolen then you find out later on he sold them to another customer. Will sell you "4340" spindles that bend the first time you run them. Then you rockwell test them and they come out about 30C. So much for heat treat. Or that one time a truck was brought in for some minor fab and he cut the whole front off because "it was wrong" And then wanted another 10K to fix what he fucked up.

The list goes on. The guy has been a douchebag for years but people just keep on giving him money.

Care to explain why a horizontal JD2 Model 3 will bend what you're saying, but mount the same bender vertically and it can't do it anymore?

How long of a compound tube bend can you do in a vertical bender setup? How do you support a long compound bend tube in a vertical bender setup for a second or third bend? As I said, I doubt it happens in a setup like that and if so, I’ve no doubt your either fighting it, it’s probably not accurate and you run out of ceiling height to handle compound long tube bends.

If it’s you thing then knock yourself out, but I see it has a huge hassle to fawk with and no advantages what so ever.

I never knew any of the drama surrounding the guy and only talked to him over the phone a couple of times. He delivered on what I ordered so I had no reason for any alarms to go off.

I bought my bender around 6 or so years ago after I sold my old M-tech. I tried to buy my buddy’s JMR setup he had that I used all the time for him and myself. He doesn’t know how to use it to build anything with it but wouldn’t part ways with it.

I've bent lots of tube in a horizontal bender over the years, and once I tried it vertically I was sold. Most of the time I don't need to support the tube like I did when it was horizontal, because gravity doesn't want to "droop" the tube out of position. That's for in-plane bends. Compound bends you have to support of course, just like any bender--but I don't run out of ceiling height because I can roll the bender outside. ;) That's the biggest difference for me, since my horizontal bender was bolted to the floor.
